Daughters father almost $5000 behind in child support.

I live in Minnesota and it seems like nothing is done. My daughters father stopped paying child support back in Sept. 08 and paid partial child support in December and January of 09. They had originally taken his license away and I recently found out that they gave it back to him. It took my child support worker 4 months to give his information to North Dakota to with hold his money and nothing is being done. I have to provide everything for my daughter, from rent and utilities down to her shoes and hair accessories. Her father still wants to see her or talk to her, but has only seen her a total of 6 times her entire 7 years of life and for at the most 15 mins each time.
I don't know where else to go with my worker, it seems like they favor him and leave me hanging. If I was without a job I would still have to provide everything for my daugther otherwise I would risk going to jail for neglect and he doesn't have to pay a dime, when he's walking around in outfits that average around $200 a piece. I also don't understand how if I irritate him, he can come up with a $250 Wii system for her for christmas plus the controllers and a pair of shoes (first he's ever bought) for $80. I am so frustrated I feel like screaming.
